The mail man's visit

Because we don't live at the cottage all the time, we don't get a lot of mail, so it is always so exciting when the postman pulls up in his yellow post office van. And what did he bring this time?

A package from Robin, thats what he brought me. Some time ago, Robin won my giveaway, and this lovely girl decided to send me a something as well. OMG, did she ever spoil me!




I adore this altered spoon necklace -



Next, I opened this beautifully wrapped little package -

and found this gorgeous fabric collage inside -




It is so delightful, and I love it. It is already feeling very much at home hanging up in my craftavan!

Thats not all though, she also sent me some great supplies -

How thoughtful and how generous was that? Thank you so very much, Robin.

I have said it so many times before, but I can't say it often enough, bloggy friends are the very best!!!

We have had visitors from England staying with us over the weekend, which meant no computer time for me ( but of course tons of fun with them ). I'll try and catch up somehow this week. :-)

Oh my gosh, More treats!! When are you going to find the time to play with it all? LOL
Robin does the most amazing fabric collages. I was lucky enough to win one of hers last year. I look at it all the time in my studio.
What a sweet surprise!
